TOWIE's Lydia Bright has joked she'd rather like ex-boyfriend James 'Arg' Argent to move as far away from her as possible… to Australia!

Fans of the ITVBe show know Lydia and Arg have had their ups and downs over the years, all played out on screen. They appeared happy during the 17th series in February, when they were house hunting together, but after the show went off-air they split again.

Now, with the 18th series of The Only Way Is Essex starting this weekend, the ex-couple have come face to face during filming in Majorca, where they were pictured having a row on the beach.

Talking about what she wants to happen this series, Lydia said: "I would like Tommy and Georgia to get married, and I would like to be maid of honour. I would like Arg to move Australia (joking but I'm not joking.)"

A source added to Daily Star that Lydia wouldn't mind Arg signing up for a reality show like I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, which requires a commitment of several weeks' filming and publicity in Australia at the end of the year.

Neither Lydia nor Arg has revealed the exact reasons for their split, but have both moved on in their own ways: Lydia went travelling across Indonesia, while Arg has been attending multiple boot camps and embracing a new, healthy lifestyle.

Lydia recently admitted it hadn't been the "best of break ups" and she was a bit nervous about bumping into Arg during filming.

She said in a TOWIE video earlier this summer: "James is at boot camp at the moment. I don't know how long he's staying there but I think it's a while as he wants to lose a lot of weight. That suits me very well at the moment because I don't have to bump into him. I know he will be coming back to Essex at some point."

Lydia and Arg hadn't been in touch prior to filming in Majorca in July, with Arg saying: "I haven't had any contact with Lydia at all. I've just been so so busy cracking on and focusing on myself. I'm doing extremely well and having a whale of a time. I'm in the zone. Life is good at the moment. I'm happy and I feel like I'm a good person to be around."

TOWIE returns to ITVBe on Sunday, 17 July at 10pm on ITVBe.
